I am not blessed with a fantastic gynecologist. Only time will inform as to whether I will have the nerve to change to but one more doctor who isn’t useful or pleasurable to me. There is something that I discovered from this certain physician although: I have a retroverted uterus. I found this out previously this 12 months for the duration of my very first appointment with flesh light-weight. She didn’t volunteer any data as to what this was and I was so freaked out about currently being there in the first location that I didn’t inquire. I afterwards experienced questions racing by means of my mind even though.

Other folks, these kinds of as myself, have it tipped in a different way but it can nonetheless make some positions, this sort of as doggy style, hard or not possible without help. That’s why I enjoy my new intercourse pillow. Some girls say that it feels as even though they are receiving hit in the cervix. I get strike in the pelvic bone. Neither is enjoyable emotion.

So what does this mean to me?
Well individually, it just means that however an additional component of me is uncommon. Like most troubles in life, we perform with what we have. I can’t get rid of the regular monthly soreness brought on by this. Nevertheless I can control what positions I have intercourse in and how I’m positioned when I do so. I also do not program to have any kids but if I ever alter my thoughts I can go into an OB/GYN’s office and not freak out if the baby’s heartbeat is tough to listen to or one more similar difficulty occurs.

Just like every single other part of the female anatomy, uteruses appear to be different all close to.
